Moose Jaw Times-Herald stops charging for web stories, ends Monday print edition

In Saskatchewan, the Moose Jaw Times-Herald has taken down its online paywall effective July 1. Readers will no longer be charged to access online stories; previously, site visitors were able to read five online stories per month before being asked to pay to continue reading additional content.

“We have heard loud and clear from our community that this policy was annoying to our readers,” said the paper’s publisher Roger Holmes. “To make our website more enjoyable, we will now post short versions of our newspaper stories on the site for free.” Longer, more in-depth articles will be available in the print edition and for digital subscribers.

The paper also announced plans to stop producing its Monday print edition as it shifts to a Tuesday to Saturday publishing schedule.
